iTunar Desktop is a simple to use menu bar app that displays details about any played song within the iTunes program. This small utility can also be used to control the music played in iTunes as it brings you access to buttons like Play/Pause, Previous and Next buttons from the main interface.
After you launch the iTunes app and start playing songs, iTunar Desktop offers you information about the song being played, such as the name of the tune, artist, album, the playing progress, and shows the album artwork. This doesn't apply for the songs that don't have ID3 tags.
If you still wish to know what song you are listening to when iTunar Desktop's interface is hidden, you can enable the Growl notifications. There's also an option to keep the program's window on top.
This small app doesn't come with a function to shuffle the playlists and let you listen to the songs randomly. Plus, the program also lacks a volume control bar for adjusting the sound settings according to your needs.
To summarize, iTunar Desktop is a handy Mac app that offers you details regarding the songs you are listening to in iTunes. The program is free to use, provides you with instant information, and, despite its small flaws, might be a great addition to your collection of applications.
